Breeding, Step-by-Step

Own a Mare

A Mare is a female horse that is at least 3 years old and not more than 15. Between these ages any retired female horse can breed.

All breeds begin with having a retired, non-pregnant, mare in your stable. You can acquire your first mare from the Marketplace and later you can breed new ones.

Pick a Stud

To find a partner for your mare, head to the Stud Farm to look at available candidates. All breeds must go through the Stud Farm. If you would like to breed your mare to your stud, it must go to the Stud Farm.

Each stud at the Stud Farm will have a breeding fee listed. Select the stud and then select the mare you would like to breed with it. If you pick your own stud to breed with, you pay the fee to yourself. The only costs are the basic breeding services.

Note: The Stud Farm is only open for a portion of the season. Make sure to get there on time or you’ll have to wait for the next breeding season.

Wait for the Foal

Breeding in PFL is always successful. There’s no risk that a pregnancy won’t take. Mares carry their foals for a season before they give birth. All foals are born at the beginning of the season after they are conceived.

And that’s it! You now have a brand new foal, ready to grow, train, race, and maybe even breed their own foals in the future.
